About this product
- DescriptionIn Reasons and the Good Roger Crisp answers some of the oldest questions in moral philosophy. Claiming that a fundamental issue in rmative ethics is what ultimate reasons for action we might have, he argues that the best statements of such reasons will t employ moral concepts. He investigates and explains the nature of reasons themselves; his account of how we come to kw them combines an intuitionist epistemology with elements of Pyrrhonist scepticism. He defends a hedonistic theory of well-being and an account of practical reason according to which we can give some, though t overriding, priority to our own good over that of others. The book develops original lines of argument within a framework of some traditional but currently less popular views.
